Universeum, Gothenburg Reviews

  • Great science museum for visitors. The rainforest exhibit must be seen and felt. Amazing displays in both Swedish and English. Very kid friendly. The on-site restaurant has great burgers and fish and chips.

  • Very nice imitation of humid environment with trees and animals. Nice space stations for fun learning. Lockers to store your valuables. Nice kids area. Yearly subscription very affordable.

  • Great place to bring kids. Fun all ages. Very well maintained.

  • Great place for a family day out. Perfect for when it's raining. The place is quite big and it will take well over three hours to see it all. The kids were kept interested in every thing that was displayed. Every different section had a perfect transition into the next and all exhibits had descriptions both in Swedish and in English. If you have children, you might want to allocate some extra time for the play area on level 0 because you won't get them out of there quickly. There are also toilets on every floor and restaurants throughout (although the only one that was open when we went was on the ground floor). The lockers and coat hangers are at the first level below ground at 10kr each, so make sure you have coins.

  • this place is quite interesting with a mix of science displays/activities & animals. there's basically a rainforest over 4 stories filled with real animals. probably aimed more for children but we really enjoyed it and we're in our mid-20's. some displays didn't have english so we couldn't understand but the majority did.
